Credit to the wizards at Hoth Bricks for unearthing the very first look at Series 8!
Here’s the lineup:
- Ancient Thespis with a skull
- Boy in Bavarian costume with a pretzel
- Conquistador with a rapier
- Cowgirl with a brown lasso
- Diver with a water gun
- DJ with a disc and a disc case
- Enemy Robot with a laser gun
- Evil Female Alien with a laser gun
- Fairy with wings and a wand
- Football Player with gold trophy
- Pirate Captain with gold cutlass and hook
- Red Cheerleader with red pom poms
- Santa Claus with sack
- Trader with newspaper and suitcase
From first glance, it doesn’t look as impressive as Series 7 – but the few highlights are
- Diver looks great
- The Bat-Guys look absolutely great – easy way to get them without purchasing Monster Fighter’s Vampire Castle
- We finally get a legit Santa hat!
- Is that a… pretzel on the Bavarian looking-dude? Sweet. More Lego food is always welcome
- Fairy wings, although from the looks of it, she’s wearing the same neck-piece as Series 6’s Robot
- Nice for me to get the Robot, which previously was only available in Series 1
From previous announcements, expect Series 8 to hit toy stores in September 2012.
